A mother of two identified as Ada Jumbo has narrated the circumstances surrounding the death of her husband, Ogah Ochigbo Jumbo, who was allegedly beaten to death by men of the Nigerian Police Force on March 20 in Nyanya, Abuja.
In an interview with Legit.ng, an obviously bereaved Jumbo shared the heart-wrenching details of how her husband came to be no more. Speaking about the faithful day, Mrs Jumbo, stated that her family comprising of herself, her husband and two kids left home early on March 20 to go about their day's business.
Her husband who was driving along the Nyanya road stopped at a junction and was making a U-turn when they were stopped by a police man who accused her husband, Ogah, of passing a one-way route.
A confused Ogah who worked as a civil defence officer came down from the car and tried to explain the situation. In the course of the debate, the police men accused Ogah of being rude and decided to teach him a lesson.
It was at that point that another police man joined them and with their two children in the vehicle, set to go to school, the policemen descended on Mrs jumbo's husband and started marshaling different punches to all parts of his body.
In a short while, the man was weak and was taken to the police station. He was left on the floor for hours before he was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Recall that Solomon Iyamu, the commandant in charge of Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) in Abuja, urged his men to see the police killing of their colleague as an act of God despite the fact that the unjust killing was perpetrated by police officers.
Addressing NSCDC officers at his Wuse Zone 5, office, Abuja, following the death of MrJumbo, an officer formerly serving at the FCT command, Iyamu said the leadership of both the police and the NSCDC were looking into the matter.
Meanwhile, the police command in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) says it has taken into custody two of its officers who allegedly killed Mr Jumbo.
